The inventors of modern Kernmantle rope have done it again. Pushing the boundaries, Edelrid has made a half and twin rated rope that is only 7.9mm in diameter. Great for climbing, rappelling, glacier travel, you name it. The new Apus rope is treated with all the standard Edelrid processes that make their ropes easy to handle and withstand the test of time. Simply a great rope for alpine adventures from a company that has been making them for 150 years. Yes, that’s right, 150 years of rope-making experience.
